Overview

Exercise Program for Hospitals

Course Description

This 4-hour course covers the design, development, conduct, and evaluation of hospital exercises, with instruction on how to coordinate regulatory, accreditation and grant exercise requirements.

The course utilizes the concepts and tools from the Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program (HSEEP) and incorporates accreditation requirements (such as The Joint Commission) while focusing on the flexibility of exercise design and modification of available tools to meet specific hospital needs, and facilitating participation in an exercise that coordinates with local, state, and federal partners.

This course was developed under the CHA Hospital Preparedness Program for hospital staff responsible for exercise development, conduct, evaluation, and after action reporting.
